Anxiety - dont feel like the same person anymore

Hi all

Its taken me a while to finally post my problems but here goes.

I have basically had a nitemare year and a half. I lost my job which was a really good job. I then broke my leg playing rugby. Then soon after I broke up with my fiancee and moved out of our new home and dont see my daughter half as much.

After all this I slept with a local girl and convinced myself I caught HIV. I spend 2/3 weeks constantly worring and thinking about this and on top of everything else that happened I just brokedown.

I had depersonaisation, derealisation, headaches, ringing in ears etc.. I found out that I didnt have HIV. But then still felt no better as I had worried myself into a breakdown.

After about three months I finally started to pull out of it. but even now 5 months after, I dont feel right. It seems Im allways thinking about death and aging now. Im 33 years old.

Why am I like this? I just dont feel the same person anymore.

Re: Anxiety - dont feel like the same person anymore

I am sorry to hear about your struggles; Igood thing about yourself is you do not have a history of drug or alcohol abuse, consult a therapist, but you can cease yourself from thinking about it
It is really dreadful to think about something like this forever, I can relate such things because . It´s a sign for me that something ishould be off and you should rest the mind.
Meditation and relaxation could serve you as well.Try to set it out of your head by constituting the word Stop! Instead, attempt to think of something beautiful like a holiday you took or a place you enjoy. It takes a while to practise it, but you will.
